BEYOND LIMITS – GET INVOLVED! On the 19th October, the Ombudsman for Children’s Office will welcome 1,000 people to Croke Park for Beyond Limits, a major event which will empower children and young people with disabilities, and raise awareness of the issues they face.
Before this event, we are asking young people all over Ireland to send us short videos that show a day in the life of a young person living with a disability.
The video can be shot on any device but needs to be filmed landscape, similar to the image layout below. It should be no longer than 1 minute and 30 seconds. All videos need to be submitted to communications@oco.ie by Friday 26th July 2019.

Applications for Ecclesiastical's £50,000 Award Now Open
Charitable giving is at the heart of what Ecclesiastical does – and has been for over 130 years.
Ecclesiastical is the only financial services group that exists to give its profits to charity. Ecclesiastical is proud to be doing things differently. To be giving back to the communities it serves and champion the issues that really matter to them – working together to build a movement for good.
Movement for Good awards
Through Ecclesiastical's Movement for Good awards, £1m is being given away to charities. We want to put our giving directly into the hands of remarkable organisations (like yours perhaps) that are changing people’s lives for the better.
Our £1m giving programme has two funding categories - £1,000 donations to 500 charities (now closed) and £50,000 grants to 10 charities. By splitting the awards into two categories, Ecclesiastical is allocating the funds in a way that charities tell us will have the greatest impact.
The £50,000 awards are open to eligible charities registered in the UK and Republic of Ireland with an income of less than £5m, which support a cause that we know our communities care about: the advancement of education and skills; citizenship or community development; arts, culture or heritage.
The deadline for applications is Friday, 26 July 2019.
For more information and to see whether your charity is eligible to apply, please visit the Ecclesiastical website here.

Fantastic. This should happen everywhere.💕

Jimeve...Can I have a hug next week?

A MASSIVE well done to all the participants in Bandon this week who completed training through our Try a Trade programme in the areas of Hospitality, Beauty and construction.

Participants are walking away with valid Safe Passes, Manual Handeling Certs and HACCP Certs as well as certificates in Gel nails.

They built a BBQ area, painted and moved walls in Construction training.

Hospitality students visited local businesses, completed customer service training and prepared, cooked and served us all.

Beauty training participants completed training in Gel nails, hair, make up and presentation skills.

A big thank you to Youthreach for allowing us to use their building and being so accommodating all week and to all the trainers.
